North Carolina A&T and Tuskegee maintained their first place positions after nine weeks in the HSRN Football Polls.

A&T, Grambling and N.C. Central held onto the top three spots in the FCS Poll. Southern and Tennessee State switched positions to round out the top five. Hampton’s MEAC conference win over S.C. State propelled the Pirates from tenth to seventh place.

Tuskegee and Winston Salem State were first and second in the Division II/NAIA poll for the second straight week.

Bowie State jumped from fifth to third with Virginia State and Albany State rounding out the top five.

Langston’s 133 point tally in the past two weeks coupled with a three-game winning streak and 5-2 record have earned the Lions the #10 spot in this week’s poll.
